Binghamton:

Nov 5 (Tue) at Cornell
Nov 10 (Sun) at Michigan State
Nov 13 (Wed) at Columbia
Nov 16 (Sat) vs Sacred Heart
Nov 20 (Wed) at NJIT
Nov 23 (Sat) vs Army
Nov 26 (Tue) vs Oneonta
Dec 1 (Sun) at Loyola (Md)
Dec 4 (Wed) vs Colgate
Dec 7 (Sat) vs Boston University
Dec 18 (Wed) at Youngstown State
Dec 20 (Fri) at Pittsburgh
Dec 29 (Sun) vs Hartwick

A couple of high major road games, a two-week stretch where we pretend that we're in the Patriot League, and a pair of home D-III games. Overall, nothing particularly noteworthy.
This exact schedule could be UVM circa like 1993-94. Except replace Oneonta and Hartwick with St. Mike's and Middlebury/or Norwich. Of course, BU was a conference foe back then as well.

CCSU should just join the AE based on their schedule! Of course I realize football does not allow that to happen. I’m glad to see CCSU back on UNH’s schedule. I know we’ve played each other the past several years in a secret scrimmage.

If UMBC plays Utah State in its other US Jamaica Classic game (already know to be playing LSU), Rhode Island will be going the opposite route of CCSU by not playing a single America East team. Not totally surprising as URI only really has extensive playing history with just two current AE members (UNH-114 and Maine-100).


Rhode Island released its OOC schedule with one home opponent (that is part of the Jamaica Classic tournament) that has not as yet been determined. It is rumored that this team will likely be either Samford, NC A&T, or UMBC.

RHODE ISLAND OOC
LIU Brooklyn
@ Maryland
Nicholls State
Alabama
TBD
Vs LSU
Vs North Texas/Utah State
@ West Virginia
Providence
Western Kentucky
@ Middle Tenn State U
@ Brown

UVM was also in the same conferences (New England and Yankee) as Maine, UNH and URI, so they probably played 100 times or so also.

Surprisingly, we have "only" played URI 34 times. And we are a...umm, sub-standard...3-31 all-time against them. All 3 wins were in 1975 and 1976. Glory days.

Per URI's records, it has played 48 games versus Vermont (URI leads 41-7) with the first game not being played until 1949. All but 2 of these meetings were then played from 1949-1976.

URI has much more common history with UNH (114 meetings with first game played 1906) and Maine (100 meetings with first game in 1910).

Distance likely played a part but this didn't seem to be the only reason as Rhody played Maine, which is further away, much more. I myself was a bit surprised that URI had not played UVM more given it was a fellow New England flagship land grant school.

URI NE State Flagship Series Meetings and First Game
UMass 154 1917
UConn 143 1907
UNH 114 1906
Maine 100 1910
Vermont 48 1949

URI has rarely played UConn (just 56 miles away) since Calhoun first took over as there have just been 3 meetings in the last 30 years. Despite nearly never having played one another in recent decades, UConn is Rhody's 3rd most played opponent and URI is still UConn's all time most played opponent by approximately 30 games (UNH is 2nd at 115).

4. Providence 131

7. Maine 100
8. Northeastern 79

10. St. Bonaventure 70

That’s what the UVM record book says, but they really are 7-41 all-time. UVM, for whatever reason (likely just oversight), does not include games vs URI prior to 1960. In fact, the record book is chock full of errors, let’s just leave it at that. Pretty embarrassing for a D1 program.

What is surprising is URI's lack of New England/NY opponents on this year's schedule, regardless of conference affiliation.

URI will play just 2 New England opponents (Brown and PC) and 1 from New York (LIU).

By comparison, CCSU will play just 2 (of 13) teams from outside of NY/New England (Penn St. and Arizona St.) this season.

Clearly, the 2 schools have very different scheduling parameters, but I'm still somewhat shocked the Rams don't "buy" more games from regional opponents. Of course URI has to play more National programs from Quad 1 if they want to be seen as a NCAA contender, but home games vs WKU, Nicholls State, and LIU don't sound like they are very appealing to locals.

LIU is URI's only true home buy game on the schedule (it is itself being bought by Maryland). Nicholls State is part of a tournament. Western Kentucky is the start of a home and home. The hilltoppers typically have strong computer numbers and have appeared in the NCAA 23 times having registered 19 wins with six separate sweet-16's and a Final-4. Seven of their appearances have been since 2000 advancing beyond the first round three times with a Sweet-16 in 2008.
